Professional Associations

Joining a professional association is a great way to expand your professional network. As a member, you are eligible to:

  • Access “members only” job boards

  • Attend the group’s conferences and conventions

  • Take professional courses and seminars

  • Receive journals, newsletters and trade publications that will keep you up to date on trends, developments and movers and shakers in your field.


There is a professional association for almost any career field you can mention. A list of professional associations recommended by Bentley faculty members is below. If you do not see an association for your career field, visit to Weddles.com: the online directory of professional associations, or review a list of associations compiled by our office. Most libraries also have ihe Encyclopedia of Associations and a directory called National Trade & Professional Associations.
